I loved sweet Sara Jane
But when I met here she didn’t use her real name
I don't know her but I remember her face
I wonder if she ever thinks of this place

I worked in a fish bowl just for a day
I didn't know I'd have to work with snakes
I jumped the tanks and swim with the rays
That's how Steve Irwin died on videotape

That's how it sometimes goes
Life is a magic show
Going too fast or either too slow

That's how it always is
Life is just taking a piss
No reward but so much risk

I love Shirley McClain
Some Came Running and some stayed the same
She played a dancer and she played a trick
The way she died in that made me sick

Life's just a lava flow
Disrupting a fashion show
Deciding too late it's time to go

Life is a tidal wave you
With nobody left to save
At least you can say that you were brave

Although we had to go
Before the stars explode
It was better that way you know
The cracks barely show

So, I'll see you there at last
Man we had a blast
It was a hell of a black mass
If anyone asks

I love being out on a limb
On a Jungle Jim or on Vicodin
Here comes Father Russell and he lookin' quite grim
You right I kind of look like him

Life is a grinding halt
A full frontal full on assault
Its easy to pretend it's not your fault

Life is just an avalanche
Alone and without your pants
This is what we call romance
